While perusing my collection I discovered two anomalies regarding Disc Ids:


A few profiles had 8 character Disc Id keys. Not sure where they came from, but they are not useful in today's Profiler.


In some cases the key Id didn't match the Disc Id in the Discs section.

So, I wrote a little tool to find these anomalies:


Initially I had the idea that I should incorporate this into ProfilerQuery, but I realized that it would be foolish to complicate ProfilerQuery with a function that you would probably only use once (or at least very few times). So I made it a separate program.

IMPORTANT NOTE: "Mismatching IDs" does not necessarily mean that you should try to change the key ID. There can be several reasons why the Ids don't match. This thread talks about one of them. Rather you could use this info to investigate why there are differences, and what - if anything - you should do about it.

Oh dear! I think I may have to install a spell checker in my Visual Studio. Sometimes I just get blind to my own spelling mistakes.
But DJ Doena was kind enough to be my spell checker today. 

So no more "Mismathcing IDs" in version 1.0.1

I'm always grateful when people point out my mistakes, big or small!

And btw, I almost misspelled "spell checker" above. Wouldn't that be ironic? 

Edit: I have installed a spell checker. So from now on, if there are any more "misspellments" in my programs, I can always blame the spell checker!
